Turkey's Defense Ministry on Wednesday (January 8) announced that four Turkish soldiers were killed during an anti-terror operation in Syria.
The soldiers were killed by a vehicle bomb attack during a road control in the Operation Peace Spring zone, the statement said.
Since 2016, Turkey has launched a trio of anti-terrorist operations across its border into northern Syria to prevent the formation of a terrorist corridor there: Operations Euphrates Shield (2016), Olive Branch (2018), and Peace Spring (October 2019).
Turkey on Oct. 9 launched Operation Peace Spring to eliminate YPG/PKK terrorists from northern Syria east of the Euphrates River in order to secure Turkey’s borders, aid in the safe return of Syrian refugees, and ensure Syria’s territorial integrity.
